When the twelve-year-old Heroine of the Fairwoods dies, her morose twin sister reluctantly joins her trusty gryphon sidekick on a quest to save the enchanted land in her stead.
The giveaway I did at Goodreads a few months back got some decent traction, so I figured I’d do a quicker, smaller one here just for my fellow ‘bloggers.
Let’s try this: If you’d like a chance to win a free signed copy of this cynical fairytale novella, just reblog this post. I’ll gather up the names from the track-back comments, throw them into a randomizer, and announce a winner in two weeks (July 21, 2013). I don’t anticipate many entrants, so your chances should be pretty good!
[This giveaway is for the physical (print) edition. The eBook, as always, can be acquired for free at your favorite retailer (Kindle | iBooks | Nook | Sony | Kobo) or direct download (ePUB | PDF).]
Metanoia, as a rhetoric device, is following up a statement with another of similar sentiment but contrasting severity. When strengthening the original idea, it can be used as a clarifier or an escalating gradient; when softening it, it can create a mild recanting or a dramatic understatement.
I fear that the slog is going to hinder me – that it’s going to smoother my brain, dull my senses, and rip the joy out of everything I do.
The slog is the absolute worst. It’s just…really not my favorite thing, you know?
